Fun House-Probably one of the best albums ever!

Full of poetry and sense, Keane is magic and great music for everybody - pilibelleza

They're just incredible! Listen to Tom's voice and the lyrics and you'll understand immediately... - Eline

Listening to Keane's music is a whole experience, from their early's simple, tender words and unique sound; to their later, more energetic, awesome and electric music.

Every album(4) and EP(1) they released, entered the charts on the 1st spot.

I think al bands are good at their side but children of bodom r one of greatesst band in this era... They have been playing for several years & their popularity explain all the things... Also it is said that a good creator can create the world also I think these lines go to the band master 'ALEXI WILDCHILD LAIHO'... GO GO ALEXI & JUST SNATCH THE 1ST POSITON IN ALL the LIST...

The best black metal band in the world.. Alexi laiho awesome!

How are they not even blow 1000, they should at least be in the top 50

Deserves to be1 - Disturbedpotato

250 Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

Pierce the veil is one of my all time favorite bands. They're lyrics are so relatable and so are the members story. They deserve to be higher than this. 134!? Come on. They're better than that

Just a good rock band to listen to when ever

You're kidding right? 125th? Is this some sort of joke. LISTEN TO A MATCH INTO WATER enough SAID LATER HATERS

This is the most inaccurate list I've ever seen. How is it possible that PTV is placed this low?

251 Good Charlotte Good Charlotte Good Charlotte is an American rock band from Waldorf, Maryland that formed in 1996. Since 1998, the band's constant members have been lead vocalist Joel Madden, lead guitarist and vocalist Benji Madden, bassist Paul Thomas, rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth, ...read more.

Good Charlotte rocks! Not only have they been around for ten years, but after those ten years, they're still young and full of great potential. They have more than 50 songs and I don't dislike one of them! Good Charlotte is sort of undiscovered though. Just go on to Napster or iTunes or whatever you use and type in Good Charlotte. I bet you know some of their songs, like...
- Cookieman1221

254 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

Love songs like "There and Back Again" and "What I want". Chris Daughtry has an amazing voice and inspiring lyrics. Definitely an awesome band!

I love Daughtry! One of my favourite bands ever. I love most of their songs especially Open Your Eyes. They deserve to be higher than 184.

256 Opeth Opeth Opeth is a Swedish progressive death metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990. Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's only founding member and primary driving force throughout the years. Along with Edge of ...read more.

Why is Opeth not on this list? Mikael Akerfeldt is the most talented musician I've ever heard (followed closely by John Petrucci). If you have never heard an Opeth song, you are doing yourself an injustice. Their music spans so many genres they have something for almost anybody. Definitely the most underrated band of all time.

Their constant switch to melodic and heavier styles of metal sound amazing, and they are definitely one of the best metal bands from the past few decades.

Ok... So I had to actually put them on here? Listen to Blackwater Park, so dark and atmospheric, so heavy and mellow. Just a perfect blend of soul and brutality

Opeth being this low on this list makes me so sad.

257 Michael Learns to Rock

You gotta be deaf not to enjoy their songs. They put a new meaning to the genre of rock music. Sentimental music that warm one's heart and brings back much childhood memories.

Most underrated band ever. Shame before they can release The Actor in the US their label got broke, but now they have a huge Asian fanbase, so why don't the US go and have a try? - justinduongpiano

The melody and the lyrics of their songs are great! They should be on top 50 at least. What a discrimination in music industry we have. Gosh!

Mltr blue night, sleeping child, complicated heart are so good to listen to

258 Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane was a San Francisco, California-based band who pioneered the American counterculture movement as well as psychedelic rock. ...read more.

With "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love" and "Volunteers" and "Martha" and "Young Girl Sunday Blues" and "Embryonic Journey" and "Crown of Creation" etc, this band is more than qualified as the most underrated on this list. - IgnoreThis

They are perfect, their music is just genius! And "Surrealistic Pillow" is surely a masterpiece... - apouroiselle

Pretty influential psychedelic band, arguably the innovators. Deserve to be in the top 59

You'll are wrong again! Another Great Band that's been thrown under the bus!

260 Dead by April

Dead by April truly rocks! They are the best. Their songs are so great because they make awesome lyrics, they play great guitar, the drumming is great, melodic vocals, best growling, and the synths also rock. Just listen to the songs Losing you and Stronger, I'm sure you'll get addicted to it. Dead by April probably the best band there is.

Just hear song Dead by April make life to the fullest, lyric full of deep meaning and music is really awesome and rocks.
